The Old Parsonage Hotel & Restaurant, Oxford
The Old Parsonage is a luxury boutique hotel and restaurant in the centre of Oxford. Located in a beautiful listed building, it has long been a prominent architectural feature of the townscape. The enclosed cottage garden style terrace to the front of the property is popular for afternoon teas. Loca Shading Designs were approached to cover the area in order to maximise its usage throughout the year.
The key consideration was to create a structure in harmony with the historical features of the building. Both in terms of colour and style. With this in mind a double-sided Markilux awning was selected, on a bespoke goal post arrangement that was custom built on site. Neutral colours were carefully chosen to sympathetically blend in with the host building. The addition of colour matched heat and light fittings ensure customer comfort no matter the weather. The end result demonstrates how a high quality contemporary structure can perfectly complement more traditional architecture.
